  • Snickerdoodles are my new favorite cookie! I will definitely try this recipe this weekend. I will try using Truvia instead of splenda. - 2/25/11

    Ablack6, try following the recipe! Snickerdoodle dough tends to be on the stiff side, which is why you need to take the lightly greased bottom of a glass in order to make them bake flat, rather tan in a ball shape.

    These are quite good. Not quite what I remember as a kid, but close!
